Labour used police chiefs to lobby MPs on terror Bill

The Government was accused last night of politicising the police by putting pressure on chief constables to lobby MPs to back controversial new anti-terrorism laws.
As the Cabinet rallied round Tony Blair to shore up his battered authority after his defeat on plans to detain terrorist suspects for up to 90 days without charge, senior Conservatives said the Government had compromised the traditional neutrality of the police.

Don't expect the Conservatives to do anything about it. They complained when the Labour Stazi tweaked the electoral boundaries to give themselves smaller and more numerous safe seats and the opposition bigger and less safe seats. They didn't press the matter and lost the election despite getting more votes.
